Additional Deseret letters

I discovered on the updated "Pipeline" page that the apocryphal Deseret
letters OI and EW were approved by UTC on 2002-05-02 for a future
version of Unicode.

Are these the same characters (and glyphs) that were described in John
Jenkins' original Deseret proposal, and displayed -- perhaps
accidentally -- in the chart accompanying the Deseret proposal for the
ConScript Unicode Registry? These are, respectively, SHORT AH with an
added SHORT I stroke (OI) and LONG OO with an added SHORT I stroke (EW).

BTW, although Deseret was withdrawn from ConScript last year, the
proposal is still available on Michael Everson's CSUR site -- if you
know where to look.
